As part of their South-East Asia Diamond Jubilee tour, Duchess Catherine and Prince William made their way over to the Solomon Islands. Despite facing a topless photo scandal, Catherine was all smiles as she greeted locals. As is true wherever she goes, everyone was anxious to see what she would be wearing. She stepped out in a variety of frocks, but in what was a nice change of pace, they were in bold colors unlike what we've seen her wear before. So where has she been around the Solomon Islands and what was she wearing?
Upon landing at the airport in the Solomon Islands on September 16, the 30-year-old wore a short-sleeve knee-length aqua Jonathan Saunders Evelyn dress that had a white and green pattern and a tie around the waist. Yet again, she wore her nude L.K. Bennett pumps. It would have been nice to see her wear matching blue heels with this dress instead of sticking with her standard. The dress retails for $1,365.
Traditional island feast
On September 16, the couple attended a traditional island feast at the Governor General's house where she wore a vibrant pink and orange strapless dress from a local store called Island Print. She previously planned to wear another frock, but the gorgeous dress she actually wore was given to her as a gift when she arrived at the hotel and she opted for that instead. Her hair was down and curly and she finished off the look with nude wedges.
While visiting the capital city of Honiara, Kate stepped out in a bright yellow knee-length shirt dress by Jaeger which currently retails for $98. It has cap sleeves, a full skirt, buttons down the front and a tie around the waist. She wore her hair down and, as to be expected, she wore her trusty nude L.K. Bennett pumps. Although the dress is simple, it's a fantastic frock to wear for summer when you want to add a bold touch of color to your wardrobe.
